Monthly Update - June 2009

Once again this month I have not spent a lot of time on online money making activities. However, I have written five hubs. With the exception of one on the top 10 countries with the largest population, they have performed relatively poorly. The other hubs which I have written are ones on the best places to get opening times for businesses in the UK, shopping in Falmouth, the online jukebox We7, and audioboo - the audio Twitter.

June 2009 earnings:

Hubpages: $11.69 (87% decrease from May)
Home-pages Friends: £0.93 (42% decrease from May)

From other sources, including paid surveys I earnt nothing, which is to be expected since I have been unable to complete any for the last few months. Hopefully I will be able to complete more soon though.

As can be seen my earnings, especially from Hubpages, experienced a massive drop in the previous month. This was mainly due to the good fortune which I had in May when a link to one of my Hubpages appeared on the front page of Yahoo! (see page on massive Adsense earnings surge). In addition, for the vast majority of June several of my hubs, including my most constantly performing one financially, seemed to drop right down the Google rankings, resulting in a massive drop in traffic. However, these have now started to appear back in the Google rankings, and so my earnings from these should hopefully increase in July.
